"EGON SCHIELE AND AUSTRIAN EXPRESSIONISM Fondazione Antonio Mazzotta, Milan"
2000-07-23 until 2001-01-14
Albertina
Vienna, , AT

Following the 1999 exhibition Gustav Klimt and the Origins of the Vienna Secession, this show is the second collaboration between the Albertina and the Fondazione Mazzotta. Its core is formed by more than 100 works from the Albertina's collection, including a selection of ca. 80 of its most important Schiele drawings.

The exhibition shows a concentrated overview of key Expressionist positions: Alongside the main figure Egon Schiele, works of particular significance from Richard Gerstl, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin and Herbert Boeckl are presented, with their dates spanning a period from 1908 to 1925.

Schiele, Gerstl and Kokoschka were the key innovators in Austrian art following the turn of the century. They formed the new impulse, the Expressionism of Austria at its beginnings. In their work the changing meaning of color and line from means of representation to carriers of expression becomes dramatically visible. Herbert Boeckl first started his artistic career after the end of the war in 1918, and principal works from this first phase are presented here. His works, which at first developed in the context of the achievements of Egon Schiele and Oskar Kokoschka, came into being under an artistic eye that focused extrovertedly on the art outside of his country primarily on that of France while it also was looking upon nature as a continuation of art.
